5:06 pm
into the metal. the devil it seems is in the details. there are a couple possibilities. during fabrication of the bolts, the metal is heat treated or baked to make the rods stronger. this process may have strengthened the steel, but left it vulnerable to hydrogen. the rods are galvanized or coated with zinc to keep water away from the metal. poor quality galvanization may have kept the steel exposed. the bolts broken were installed years ago but only recently tightened down. during that time, rain water may have seeped into the metal making the rods brittle. caltrans wouldn't say it any of the scenarios or some other cause led to the 32 broken rods. >> we do know there is hydrogen. there is an excess of hydrogen in the steel bolts. at what point that hydrogen came to be in the steel bolts, we don't know. that's what the investigation is looking into. >> reporter: in the meantime, testing continues on the remaining bolts. cl transengineers are working on a -- caltrans engineers are working for a way to repair or
